    Re: One-Hit Wonders

    Some great somgs here but don't forget: Steam with Na Na Na Na Kiss Him Goodbye

    Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye - YouTube

    Edit -- Just watched this video for the first time and it is perhaps the worse recorded lip-syncing I've ever seen. I'm thinking some illicit drug use on both sides of the camera. Plus the way that the lead singer dances, may explain why this group had only one hit.

    Re: One-Hit Wonders

    Liar Liar by the Castaways has to get some top ten if not overall top consideration.

    ... it stands the test of time
    ... it made it into the soundtrack of several movies
    ... written and performed by an obscure garage band thrown together to play a fraternity party
    ... the song peaked at #12 nationally on billboard
    ... no other hits by the group, possibly not even any other surviving recordings

    That's not a one hit wonder, more like an every Friday hit for most posters on here.

    Cupid Shuffle-Bryson Bernard

    Dude was on The Voice this year too and didn't make the cut. Cee Lo was slightly surprised to see Cupid himself show up on the show. The funny part was him saying that he wanted to get rid of being known for just the one song and then proceeded to perform said song.


    It's all snark from here on out
